Poll - Who do you like in the MVC?

Postby Old MVC Days » Thu Dec 12, 2013 9:23 am

So I do still have a little bit of a soft spot for the MVC still. Hence the name. There's something about its small-time but yet classic basketball feel. I will still try to catch some games on TV whenever those might be. I'm curious what teams Creighton fans will be rooting for. You get two votes.

I choose Indiana State for one vote. I love Greg Lansing, Larry Bird and their storied title game vs. Magic Johnson and the Spartans, and their wholesome feel. Their team sort of reminds me of a late 90's version of us. I don't love Jake Odum but whatever.

My second vote goes to Drake. I think their city deserves something decent and I'd like to see another Iowa team do well besides that team from Iowa City or the good ole' boys from Ames. And Jethro's BBQ is too good to not have a good basketball team down the road.

I don't know that I like anyone per se, but I do miss the SIU rivalry. At the beginning of the century up until about 2008, those were some epic battles. SIU's drop off under Lowery really damaged my interest in the MVC.

If I were to root for anyone to do well, I suppose it would be Drake, simply due to proximity. I will miss the ability to go to one conference roadie yearly.

I think Drake is heading in a very positive direction. Unfortunately for the MVC, certain programs are just dead weight. Teams like SIU, Loyola, Evansville. And isn't UNI's athletic department struggling mightily to operate? Super glad we're not in that podunk conference.

Maybe that's why it's in Off Topic. Does everybody around here have to put everyone else down?

Geez we need a game this week.
